4 Works in Bacchae - Euripides
Poor Semele, in the garden,
Caught a god within her eye
And great Zeus, that boundless circle
Sighed and opened up his thigh.
And Agave, on the mountain
Heard a god say open wide.
What it says on the tin. Modern AU of The Bacchae.
When I was a very small child my Aunt Semele was struck by lightning and died.
